~My entire family LOVED this soup! Other than switching out the peppers for a carrot (personal taste), I completely followed the recipe and we couldn't be happier! It is flavorful and rich, and really hits the spot. I will use the bread bowls next time and then this wonderful soup will be better than Panera Bread's!! Yes, it IS that good. It's a keeper!
Rather bland, and I knew from years of experience that the sage & garlic would not even be noticed, so I doubled the amounts called for. Still turned out to be a very bland soup. Husband agreed. Would not make again.
A great soup on its own. I make my own richly flavored broth for the recipe using two large smoked turkey legs. Add legs to pot, cover with water, add 2 celery ribs (chunked), 1 large onion (chopped), 2 bay leaves, 1 tbs. peppercorns, cover and simmer until meat falls away from bone. Reserve meat and discard bones. Strain and defat broth. Use reserved meat in place of bacon. I also used leeks in place of the onion for the finished soup. Otherwise all other ingredients are the same.
A winner! We replaced the whipping cream with milk (it was all we had) and added crushed red pepper flakes. It turned out great.
I made this for the first time last night and it was AMAZING!!!! This soup is going to be a regular meal in our house. My son recently got his first deer, so I added some ground venison to the soup and it just made it that much better. The roasted red peppers and cilantro are a must! They add soooooo much flavor! An excellent soup!!!!
